The Pisgah Dobson is perfect for those looking for a lighter weight banjo with good sustain and projection.  Our Dobson tone ring, modeled after the original 1881 patent, is bell shaped and gives the banjo good sustain and resonance while only adding 9oz to the total weight.  The Pisgah Dobson is very responsive, making it a joy to play!
